Lusting After: Journey of Wool Mugs. . .

Aren't these new Wool Journey Mugs from Herdy just wonderful?  Each woodcut depicts a different stage in the process of getting the wool from the sheep into a woven or knitted fabric. Available on a tea towel too. I love them!  I visited the Herdy shop in Grasmere over the summer as the town was a stop on our Coast to Coast walk and I have some Herdy stitch markers that are very cute, and this landscape mug (don't you just love the sheep peeping out of the inside?

What's great about this company is that they donate part of their profits to maintaining the beauty of the Lake District where of course Herdwick sheep are bountiful.
